HELENA -- The Carroll College men's basketball team got back into the win column on Sunday afternoon, defeating Providence 74-68 at the PE Center.
In the first half, the Saints didn't get off to the start they had hoped for. They faced a 22-13 deficit before cutting it to a 32-28 halftime score in favor of the Argos.
In the second half, however, it was all Saints. Carroll outscored Providence 46-36 in the last 20 minutes of play, propelling the Saints to the 74-68 victory.
Shamrock Campbell, a junior from Spokane, Wash., led the way for the Saints, scoring 27 points on 9-of-14 shooting with six free throws in crunch time to help ice the game.
The Argos were led by Zaccheus Darko-Kelly. The senior from Great Falls tallied 17 points, nine rebounds and four assists.
With this victory, Carroll is now 14-6 on the year and 11-5 in Frontier Conference play. Providence remains in first place in the Frontier Conference with a record of 12-2.
Carroll will wrap up its conference schedule next weekend on the road, taking on Montana Western next Saturday and Sunday.
